wee….

Well, after the last post it’s time for full disclosure.  The Parakeet is done breastfeeding Little O.  She had already added formula if you remember around the first of the year.  He wasn’t putting on enough weight and the bird could never get enough pumped to leave him with someone else.  Then, mid-March through mid-April happened. Holy Moly. The Keet got Busy! She wasn’t seeing Owen for many of his feedings some days. She would pump while away, but not leave with much milk.  When she was home, O seemed fine but sometimes he would get fussy and need a bottle after she nursed him.  Pretty soon, she was nursing him only in the morning.  Then, she realized she had basically started weaning him.  So…that was it.  He was squirmy and frustrated trying to nurse. She was not with him enough to encourage the situation.  So, they are on formula. She had no pain switching over so it was pretty naturally time.  The Keet missed it a little and still does -their time to slow down together in that way.  But she also misses a little being able to put him in the bumbo seat and walk away.  So, really it’s called time, isn’t it?  And time is marching right on ahead with her baby.  O turned eight months old this week.  He’s probably been two weeks on formula and awesome homemade baby food, of course.
The most recent fave is a combo of green beans and apples.  At first, you might think it’s weird but then think about it again. Yeah, that’s right – YUM!
